    Saw this recently and couldn't find an explanation. Is it common? The coin is a 1871 Mexico silver ZsZ.jpg 10 centavos

    For the 19th century Mexican coins there are many mint marks, probably around 10 or so just estimating. That one stands for Zaragoza. I don't think any of them are super common but it varies by year.

    The double s is what I'm referring to.

    Found this, but again nothing on the 1871 Zs. Yours could be the one and only that exists (okay, I'm hyping it). You might want to try contacting someone from this site :

    Perhaps the double s is an ampersand.

    As it has the letters ZsZ, it cannot be 1871 and must be 1885 or later. In reality it is the 1891 double S variety.

    Youre correct, it is a 91. Thanks!

    Jay, AOL is still alive these days, as I've been using it since 1993, back in the days of "dial-up" and the "pay-per-minute"...
